I am teaching my 4.5 year-old kid to write letter C.
I copied this phrase from a video on youtube. Probally, the video is made by native English speakers.
Watch this clip starting at 3:40
"I start at the top, and go around till you reach the bottom."
My question is that
If we say that, then it can be either one of the 2 symbols shown in the above picture.
Do we need to add "to the left" to make it clearer?
For example, "To draw C. Start at the top, and go around to the left till you reach the bottom."?
Note: The key point is to tell the child to make a smooth movement and a minimum effort without having to lift the pen and using an eraser.
